Back in the days before handy portable digital audio recorders, the enterprising fan was often at a loss when wanting to preserve some memory of a beloved band’s live show (especially when such shows were legendary, and didn’t often happen near said enterprising fan’s place of residence). What to do?
Well, occasionally, unscrupulous sound-board guys, lubricated with the modern-day finski (a $20 bill — inflation) could be prevailed upon to provide a copy of the show. In this case, the board was outfitted with a CD-recorder. The fine fellow manning the board in this case forgot to finalize the disc at the end, and he didn’t put the track markers in the right place, providing infinite frustration until another recorder could be found to produce a usable copy. Ah, the early-2000?s!
Anyway, here you have a soundboard recording of Low around the time of the release of Things We Lost in the Fire. I’ll be honest: while I fixed the track markers, I didn’t EQ or normalize this at all. Parts are incredibly quiet, and others are incredibly loud. That’s Low, and god bless them for it. Download Audacity and play with it yourself if you want something different.
Oh, and I requested “Soon.” Expletives can’t express how great this song is. Alan Sparhawk is screaming his lungs out around 5:15, just nowhere near the mike. This came right after his extended efforts to get the disco ball hanging from the ceiling to start spinning.
Thanks a lot to JBird for taping and finally sharing this fine recording on his blog. Thanks also to Steve for tracking it down, and to Charles for completing the date. I decided to master this a little bit. Especially the second part contained some clicks and plops, these were removed one by one as much as possible in Audacity with the Hard Limiter plug-in. The complete recording was then normalized to fix clipping in the loudest section.
